As usual, we had a busy weekend and one of the activities included hosting a birthday party for Leyla, celebrating 16 years of her precious life. It was executed in a bit of a whirl but I did manage to dip some pretzels to add to the table of goodies.
Dipped pretzels are such a fun & easy treat and have become a favorite of Livy's, my pretzel queen:)
To accomplish, simply choose your favorite brand of pretzel rods (Snyder's for us) and dip in melted chocolate- I melt chocolate chips in a handy dandy 'double boiler' aka heat proof bowl set over a saucepan with an inch of simmering water.
Once the chocolate has completely melted and is smooth, dip away and roll in your favorite edible party decor- we've used sugar stars, nonpareils, colored sugar and mini chocolate chips:) *TIP: use white chocolate for colored sugar!
Livy enjoys smelling her food to ensure it's not poisonous... (sigh)
One nibble to start things off...
And thumbs up for a great treat! Olivia & I would love to have you try these too- they're sure to be a grand success:)
Making your day a little sweeter,
